comment Checkbox in Mediawiki syntax?
I upgraded to 1.22.4 and it stopped working. I'd forgotten that I'd done this tweak, so I've just come across my own answer! I've also updated it.

comment Dropdownlist works in Excel 2010 but not 2007
This worked for me. I think the problem is that 2007 doesn't let you select a range on another sheet, though you can type it in the box, making sure you include the sheet name.

comment Pinned tab on Google Chrome has a rippling or highlighting effect
Yes, indeed. For the twitter tab the title is changing to (n) Twitter... where n is the number of new tweets. Just clicking on the tab and then clicking away gets rid of the rippling.

comment Why does excel always say “..may contain features that are not compatible with CSV” when saving a CSV file?
I agree it's annoying, though with older versions, I think it was 2000 and before, there were two question you had to answer before you could save a CSV. Then when you close it it asks you if you want to save it, even if you have!

comment Manual archive in Outlook 2010 does not work
Are they older than the period that you've specified for archiving? For emails if you change something about the email, like marking it as read, or deleting an attachment, the date you did that is used for working out whether to archive it, not the date it was sent.
